Friday Alterllooll, April 12,1801
Report of the Select Committee.
The select Committee appointed by
both branches of the Legislature to con
sider the suggestions in the message
of Gov. Curtin recommending the or
ganization of the militia system, have
agreed upon a bill which authorizes the
appointment of an Adjutant General,
Commissary General and Quarter Master
General, whose duty it shall be to re
organize the Military forces of this Com
monwealth, and at the same time procure
proper arms and the necessary equipments
for,the use of the same. In order to en
able them to do so a sum not exceeding
000,00 is prcposed to be appropriated,
to be raised either by loan or taken direct
from the Treasury.
We are satisfied that a loan will be un
necessary,and that the usual resources will
pay all these expenses. It may, however,
suSpend the, payment of a Portion of the
public debt, but be this even possible, the
bill should be passed Without and
if there• are any tory Democrats ip.the
Legielatnre, who are opposed to the exc..
cation of the Laws and the preservation
of this Union, let them put their votes
on record and show to the world that we
have Traiters in our own midst. We
hope and trust, however, for the honor of
the State, that negative votes on this bill
may be confined to the Breckinridge wing
of' the party, of which our neighbors of
the Patriot and Union are such distin
guished members, and who should be
known hereafter as the TORIES OF 1861 !
THE &PRIVITY OP A -DorIGH-FAOE is,
of all sophistries, the most contemptible:
Thus, the effort to hold Abraham Lin
oblia -responsible for the present crisis ex
cells anything in the line of Democratic
assurance that has ever been attempted.
MN° tutiplied this conspiracy ? The
leaders of the Democratic party, with the
kkinwleise and consent of the administra
tion ofeTaines Buchanan. It was the re
sult'olthe determination of the southern
wing of the Democratic party to destroy
the4pular sovereignty clique. tinder the
Dead of Douglas—and when Ficyd,%Breck
litrilige, Tancy, Davis and tie other
thitbrie found that they had raised a
devil in their own midst that they could
net eioreise, they attempt the-pitiful sub
terfuge and excuse that 'their treason,
thefts and 'perjuries were the result of
the manly independence, judgment and
proferenee of the people of the North.
litbat has Abraham Lincoln done, to be
made responsible for these outrages He
has sworn to support the Constitution of
his country—pledged and equally 'sworn
to enforce its laws against all offenders,
and hound to recognize every man who
'fetuses, to yield him a support in, his at
tempt ,to maintain the Constitution and
laws;of the land, as a traitor and,a coward.
Stwely,-this is not a matter of policy, as
the cold indifference of the Patriot seeks
to make it. Nor is it a matter of policy
for any man to select between his country
and his country's foes. The movement
at the South, is illigitimate in every re
spect—illigitimate and treasonable be
cause it seeks the violent abrogation of
lawa instead of changing them through
the peaceful and legitimate channels of
leglalation. They make no appeals to
Congress or the Executive by petition or
by speech—on the contrary they array
themselves with arms, beseige the capital
and insolently demand the surrender of
the archives and property of the nation.
Is such conduct merely the exercise of a
rightful opinions. Does it come within
the prerogative of the citizen to set at
defiance the majesty of the law—and is
the'sovereignty of the State superior to
that ,of the national government? If so,
Jeff. Davis and his sympathisers of the
and Union are right. If not,
they aroloth guilty of treason. The
case is a very plain one, and the circum
stances are familiar to the readers of the
TELEGRAPH, among whom we are proud
to number our neighbors. In this in
stance policies become great necessities,
from the adoption of which there is but
one alternative, and that is utter rejection
and consequent treason. There can be
no two opinions between citizens in the
hour of their country's danger--particn
larly when that danger is augmented by
the appearance of treason and - rebellion.
Those who pause to dispute as to policiea
and gullible as to thei4recise duty, cer
tainty Ao not love them, country. In an
boy like this, every free man should be
imbued with the single determination of
sieving his country from the - ravages .of
rebellion, not with policies and abstract
notions of utility and duty, but with the
means presented when all others have
failed, the army and the navy.
THE PROPOSITION TO APPROPRIATE
five hundred thousand dollars, for the pur
pose of re-organizing the militia system and
placing the State on a war footing, should
in no Manner be impeded ty any useless
delay or technicalities in legislation. The
proposition itself is plain and practical—
and needs only a plain and practical law
to carry it into force. The amount of
money appropriated is sufficient for all
necessary.purposes, so that in placing this
sum at the disposal of the proper persons
for its disbursement, care should be taken
that every dollar is applied to the proposed
object, and so applied, too, as to ensure
the success and utility of that object.—
The mere organization of the military
system, with the facilities at the command
of the State, is not a work of such a
stupendous character as to require any
extraordinary legislation. The main olt
jOStto be achieved is •to secure this organ
ization without,* necesessity of draft
ing, which can easily be accomplished by
making it •an inaucement to volunteer.
Every-volunteer corps in the State should
be inspected, and in every respect im
proved where : improvement was necessa
ry. And in this `manner, after the volun
teer troeps of - the State had been complete
ly 'organized; additions made' to that force
by the organization of such arms of the
service' as were deemed necessary, and the
proper encouragement given to the young
and hardy men of the State to enroll
themselves, by making every volunteer
company Jeopectable in the possession of
moderdarins and.eqUipments, the milita
ry footing of Pennsylvania would rank
with that , of any commonwealth in the
ThOse who have this matter in charge
havo assumed a responsibility at once im
portant and patriotic. In the discharge
of their duty it is our purpose to give
them all the support within our power,
and also to urge upon the legislature the
grave necessity of passing such a law as,
will facilitate this most important organi
zation, and guard against any pos'aibility
of the sum'to be appropriated being at
tracted from its legitimate and due pur
A FERVENT UNION SENTIMENT is
being cultivated in every one .of the se
ceded States but South Carolina, where
freedom or the Union never had a sincere
or devoted friend. Louisiana is border
ing on revolution against the confederate
powers—while the people of Georgia and
:Alabama are only restrained from open
;hostilities ag ainst those who are daily
misleading them, by the promise of a
"good time coming." The government
at Washington have the most satidactory
accounts from the South, as to both the
loyalty of the masses to the Union, and
the daily:demoralization of the Montgom
ery oligarchy. Many of the recent move
meats of Mr. Lincoln have been in re
sponse to this feeling, and it is predicted
that when the banner of the Union is
again unfurled iit the South, thousands
will flock to its standard, to swell the
already respectable Union party in the
seceded States. The leaders of secession
already begin to entrench themselves be
hind the most vigorous laws, , and are
quietly depriving the people of all power
which could , possibly be wielded against
their government. The old adage of a
wheel within a wheel, may soon be ex
empliiied by a revolution within a revo
lution in this instande.
GEORGX W. BELLE, of Maryland, has
been appointed. Naval Storekeeper at
Washington, D. C. We believe that the
President could not have selected a man
more deserving.than Mr. Beale, both as
,s devoted and sincere Republican, as well
as a powerful and intrepid defender of
the Union. In his Mate, he has been
contending with a large and powerful . se
cession faction ever since Jeff. Davis
turned traitorand to declare . for the
Union in the portion of Maryland from
which Mr. Beale hails, is to be exposed
to the assaults and aspersions of some - of
the most reckless men in the country.
We rejoice at Col. Beale's appointment
as much because of his Republicanism, as
for the true chivalry and generosity of his
character. His father was a distinguish
ed officer in the American navy, and he
is a brother to the renowned 'Lieut.'Ed- :
ward Beale, whose exploits as'an explorer
and - daring pioneer of the western wilds,
were shared by the newly appointed naval
storekeeper, George W. Beak,.

IN THE HOUR OP DANGER, the people , of

eloquently as the present enthusiatioally
bears witness to their valor, and we 4ave
